Newmarket-on-Fergus

Newmarket-on-Fergus is a town in County Clare in the west of Ireland. It was Lord Inchiqin who supposedly named the village after the famous horse racing course. A highlight of the area is Dromoland Castle, which was Lord Inchiqin’s neo-gothic mansion and which contains one of the most extensive hill forts in Ireland, Mooghaun Hill-Fort – the oldest ring fort in in Europe and the site of a prehistoric walled village. Newmarket-on-Fergus is near to Shannon Airport, as well as Bunratty Castle, a large 15th Century tower house with an adjoining folk park.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
